Does consulting have a crisis of confidence?

After reviewing the results of our exclusive Best Firms to Work For and Best Small Firms to Work survey, it would appear so. One of the main findings of the survey is confidence levels fell in five of the six facets of employee satisfaction in 2011 as measured by Consulting magazine’s annual rankings.

The lone exception was compensation satisfaction, which essentially stagnated (up slightly from 4.00 to 4.01 on a 5-point scale). More than 13,000 consultants completed the survey, the profession’s largest independent analysis of employee satisfaction.
